A quote from: Design for Community: Excerpt: Chapter 2: A conversation with Matt Haughey So this one day, I decided to stop speaking at the community of readers, and start speaking to them, engaging them. I can’t remember what the first thing I tried this on was, but it was something like “here’s a story of something embarrassing that happened to someone. What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you?”
This is such a cool thought, and definitely something to try in my class blogs. I’ve been searching for ways to build community through the weblog, and here it is. Have I mentioned that I love Metafilter? I love the interaction. I need to find out how to make our weblogs work like that.
